Red Bull Rampage 2014: Injury Update - Aggy

Sep 29, 2014
by Julian Coffey  
Looks like the people's champ is down with an injury after a bail from a dumped 3 on the Polaris booter during practice runs yesterday. More details to come but it doesn't sound like Aggasiz, the number one Rampage qualifier, will compete in finals today.

Number one qualifier for the day Graham Agassiz.

 I think there is now a 1 in 10 chance of winning a Boxxer!

 i got to say that vital is covering this event way better than pinkbike
  • 13 1
 Vital's photo slideshows are always f*cking on point, their WC coverage is stellar. The audio/photo combo rocks
  • 20 4
 Vital seems to be more raw and "fast" material where as pinkbike generally has better quality stuff. Just my 2 cents.

 Reminding the fast Stevie's achievements, from the aerodynamic point of view I can now tell it is a yes for a mustache, and a no for more hair when it comes to face winds and rotations. There should be some science done over this. Flying involves aerodynamic features of shapes and plains.

 I can't take this emotional roller coaster! Get well, soon, Aggy-- we'll sure miss you this year!

 The phrase "emotional roller coaster" is absolutelly correct and spot on for the situation.

 2,500 incorrect guesses for those boxxers then....

 Question, when the event is over today how long until Redbull usually puts it on their site to rewatch? I have to work all day and I cant watch it till tonight.

No internert, no twitter, no social media for me rest of the day today. I dont want to spoil it

 Wow there, easy with the coughing - It sounds like you got some nasty flu for the next 6 hours... Better stay home and keep your coworkers safe.
  • 3 1
 and keep my TV company haha. If I didn't have something absolutely crucial to get done today I would. I hate being a responsible employee.

 @Biocoug1 Usually, the live-player is automatically switched to a replay-player at the end of an event. Wink
  • 1 0
 You can stream it on your phone/tablet through Redbull TV app. That way you don't have to use company internet Smile

 You got to move to Scandinavia Biocoug, then you'll be able to take sick-leave and still run a company. Everyone is used to waiting for a service here, particularly from a TV/broadband tel companies hahaha

 @Senseless I just couldn't watch Rampage on a 4.5 inch screen when I have a 125" projector screen waiting for me at home. Sorry I'm being a spoiled brat about this one haha Smile

@Waki I'd move to in a heartbeat. Probably much better science jobs in Europe right now anyway. Biotech is dying here.

 Göteborg where I live is the place to be for biotech, and I was actualy taking part in designing Astra Zeneca facilities Big Grin

 @Biocoug1 fair enough haha If I had a big screen waiting for me at home I would watch it there too.

 i have to get up early tomorrow morning but can see I'm going to be up late watching it tonight

 I'm thinking about going Black Ops Code Silent Black Out mode on purpose actually...no bike sites or media until tonight....the live feed usually buffers at exactly the wrong moments anyways...The RedBull site and/or torrents are pretty good about not having spoilers in the titles...then I can snag it with the videodownloader for seamless playback Smile

 @Ralfinger - I am pretty sure it's that big booter at the bottom with the RZR and Polaris logos that everyone is flipping or spinning. Tons of photos and vids.
  • 6 2
 Chubey is in! Sucks for Aggy, I hope he makes a full recovery
  • 1 0
 damn. the event is brutal. practice, qualis and finals all with the same significant high risk. gutted for him. his second quali run was scary big. andreu and aggy's were the runs i was looking forward too the most.
  • 3 0
 Well, let's all turn our attention to Lacondeguy wrecking that line then! Bummer for Aggy. Freeriding is no joke.
  • 1 0
 too bad, would love to see him win. when I heard about the session last night, my first though was..."that might not be the smartest thing to do right now, what if you get hurt and screw everything up"
  • 2 0
 I was really hoping to finally see a true free rider win this flipping event and get it back on course for what this event used to be all about.
  • 1 0
 aggy must be cursed, he always smashes his lines in qualies & ya just know if he makes it to finals he's taking top spot, but always goes out injured, bad luck man, heal up quick.

 If this is a Red Bull event, and there is Red Bull TV, why the hell isn't EVERYTHING to do with Rampage televised? Qualifier rounds and entire finals, it's maddening!
  • 1 0
 poor Aggy, but I am on board with him playing it safe and returning to slay another day..... btw, that hairdo and beard?!?! Aggy is the Gandalf of freeride, yeah! #gandalfoffreeride

 The Finals are going off now. But the "Live" Stream Starts at 3pm, wtf redbull?
  • 1 0
 whats the point of that final prictice run anyway, with such a huge consequences on those massive jumps, is it not better to save yourself for a final and go all in
  • 3 0
 Pure suckage
  • 6 5
 That sucks he worked so hard in qualifiers and now this! If he was pre qualified this might not have happened.
  • 13 1
 Well if he hadn't crashed in finals last year, he would've been pre-qualified.
I may be wrong, but you seem to be almost angry at the organizers. It's just the way the rules are: top 10 in finals gets you pre-qualified. Any other way would be pure favoritism.

 Yeah your right I'm just devastated aggys out.

 I was thinking a fairy tale conclusion similar to Sorge's win a few years back but nooo...

 I guess they can just keep their boxxer then.. Shame about Aggy, must be devastated!

 dude get well soon, forget about the haters and enjoy a beer in bed, cheers from Chile!!!

 I don't think there are any haters on Aggy. PB community loves this guy and last days we got the best proof of that. I was shocked to read the news and I couldn't believe my eyes at the very first moment. After such an efort and such a great quali run to miss the finals is a bummer. I'm sure that his second quali run will be one of the highlights on Rampage this year. That was insane run.
  • 1 0
 They should let the 11th rider from quali ride in finals then. So sad for him, he was so determined to win!

 and this is why there shouldn't be a fucking qualifying day. all invitees get practice days and a finals run. no qualifying.
  • 5 1
 He was practicing. Not qualifying.

 the event would be over if there was no qualifying. finals would have ran it's course and it would be over.

 Hah. So whiney. Nothing up my ass kid.. I guess it's that all these 14 year olds are so invested in changing how this event is run this time around. It's just interesting to me that this is the first time internet slacktivism has really annoyed me. So many keyboard warriors think they know better than the professionals putting serious man hours into these events.
  • 2 1
 I'm older than you cheif, so don't call me kid. If you are so bothered about people posting their opinions on a blog, be it from a 14 year old or not, then you should just stay off of it. Stop your whining and check your ego at the door, or just don't come in at all.
  • 1 3
 Maybe I'll just skip watching Rampage today...
